Baltimore Ravens tight end Ben Watson talked about abortion in a recent interview and called upon men to take responsibility for their actions and protect women and young girls from facing the devastation of abortion.
Watson, who took part of the 2017 March For Life, addressed the tens of thousands of pro-life activists and pointed out the disproportionate number of abortions in the black community.
“When it comes to the black community, we represent a larger proportion of abortions than I would like, than any of us would like,” he explained. “And so, to me, it’s a big challenge to men, as well – not just black men, not white men, but just men in general – to step up and protect women, to protect young girls, to protect the pre-born.”
“Men were made to be protectors and caretakers, and a lot of what we’re seeing when it comes to this topic would be a thing of the past if our men would stand up and be men,” urged Watson.
He was asked about his expectations from America’s new pro-life administration, reports Breitbart.
“This is a heart issue. No matter who’s in office, the people’s hearts have to be changed when it comes to how we view life and how we esteem life. And that will affect what happens at the top,” responded Ben.
“My hope is that we have an administration that protects life at the forefront, and that it’s important to them to enact laws and to campaign for issues that are important when it comes to life,” he said.
As Planned Parenthood celebrated its centennial anniversary, Watson, who is a devout Christian, commented: “I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of the abortions, and I do know that honestly the whole idea with Planned Parenthood and [founder Margaret] Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks, and it’s kind of ironic that it’s working.”
